Description

Do you remember this one? For drivers over forty, it was a legendary sight, appearing out of the blue in your rear-view mirror or warning you from the hard shoulder of an approaching traffic jam. Feared yet respected, the special Porsche unit of the national police force. With the idea of driving some twenty kilometres faster than the average traffic, and thus surprising, the Germans began to make their Autobahn safer in the early 1960s. In the early sixties, there were already 1600 traffic deaths per year in the Netherlands, so this was badly needed. The Dutch National Police heard about the success of the fast Porsche's and wanted the same. From 1962 onwards, the national police force wore 500 of them, until the Ministry of Finance deemed them too expensive and decided to continue with the Mercedes 190. From feared and respected highway policeman to taxi driver, the mostly mustachioed men thought at the time. An additional advantage was, in the absence of an open Targa roof, that the helmets could be stored in the closet and the physio no longer had to repair overworked right arms. Of course, the Ministry could never have guessed that their white mice cars would make it to the status of collectors' items. Father State is not usually so handy with older material. Even 911 Targa's that were not really used by the National Police were later dressed up as police cars. The one on offer here, however, managed to get your father fined for driving 180 km/h at the Oude Rijn junction. The booklet with the printed copy is still in the back. As well as several items that a National Police Porsche had with it. And that is what makes this number 72 so special. The car is in a very good condition, thanks to a professional restoration. Completely rust free and with many original details. A small list; fire extinguisher, radio, sirens, working beacon, working rear stop sign, megaphone with microphone in glove compartment, white police jacket, cap, helmet, first aid kit, etc. etc. In September 1980 the Alex 72 was taken into use by the General Traffic Department in Driebergen. The car is equipped with original 15" hackmesser ATS rims and a 185hp matching 3.0ltr. engine. The engine has recently undergone an overhaul. The bodywork has also been restored, newly painted and equipped with the original time-correct striping and lettering. This striping / lettering is applied correctly by only one company in the Netherlands, where this car has been newly painted. This National Police 911 is unique in its kind and is in excellent condition. As a result, the car drives excellent, the bodywork has symmetrical fits. Permission to drive in this configuration is provided. Also present are photos showing the car in use on Dutch highways. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
